In Others’ Words: Books
“TV. If kids are entertained by two letters, imagine the fun they’ll have with twenty-six. Open your child’s imagination. Open a book.” ~Author uknown
I have always loved to read books. Always.
One of my favorite childhood memories? Entering the library carrying nothing but my library card — and leaving a short while later carrying a leaning tower of books. Lots and lots of books.
I always finished them before the due date. Always.
My husband and I had many goals as parents. One of them was that we wanted our children to love to read. We read to them from the time they were babies and continued into their early teens. Yep, you read that right: We read to our children when they were teens. We started with books like Goodnight Moon and The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear and continued through all the Little House on the Prairie Series (three times) to the Chronicles of Narnia to (today) the Dragons of the Valley.
I’m thrilled that all my children love to read — and a couple of them like to write too.
